Epilepsy Surgery Success in Asia and Oceania
Vijay Jani has suffered from epilepsy, obesity and depression for several years. Following surgery, his seizures stopped. Yet, he did not stop there. He was determined to make a change. He refused for epilepsy to create any limits for him. He continued to exercise, got into form, took up cycling marathons, and then excelled in several marathons. He now campaigns for the cause of persons with epilepsy by spreading awareness and helping eliminate stigmas, myths, and superstitions.
